Lesson Study: Powerful Assessment and Professional Practice focuses on an actual account of how a school staff built their professional development framework on the cornerstones of assessment for learning. Through the structure of the lesson study, discover how these educators:

  • linked collaborative planning with creating a clear learning destination
  • described modelling and observing through the lens of identifying quality
  • debriefed and revised lessons as a process of giving and receiving descriptive feedback
  • collected triangulated evidence of their own learning

If you are an educator interested in professional learning as a teacher leader, a professional development leader, a school-based leader, or a system leader, the authors invite you to read their story and consider the ways in which you might adapt it to work in your particular context.
